    It's one of my favorite plants. I had to have one before the internship ended. It's an usually tall genotype, too, a little over 2 feet tall and a coppery red color before the first frost. The site where they're from is even more impressive, from what I've heard. It's definitely a species worth protecting.

    Awesome pics as always. Quite the gallery to go through.

    That Jonesii is something else!

    I still have more photos to post. Thanks for the feedback! I have some print available on my DeviantArt account.

    The one I brought home is working on a nice, tall pitcher. I'm looking forward to doing a giveaway of this plant in a few years.

    Your friend got to meet Betty White? Now or when she was younger? I envy her so much.

    She met her last year. So far we have 3 phenotypes of "Powhatan" x leuco "burgundy." One is this one, another is yellow with really dark veins, and the third one is all red.

    Here's my least favorite thing in the plant beds, a giant water bug. This thing is about the size of my BlackBerry, and will make a grown man scream like a little girl with one bite. This is the molted shell.

    What we thought was Tetragonotheca, but isn't.

    A very large jumping spider.

    This is a ditch in Westmoreland County that used to have Drosera intermedia in it. It's entirely too overgrown, polluted, and trashed for sundews to survive anymore.

    This is what the majority of the ponds in the area look like. Weedy, neglected, and awful.

    Q7142235 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    I was going to take this, but paper wasps built their nest in the brain case.

    Q7142237 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    We may have lost Drosera intermedia in one site, but we found a new one!

    Q7142238 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    We found about 6 plants on the North bank.

    Well, I am an art major, and won the senior award (for some wearable sculptures). It's hard not to make jonesii look good. The backlighting helps a lot.
